GOOD PAY but that's it. High turn over, a lot of favoritism, and horrible leads but expected to do hit budget every mth.

Admissions Advisor (Former Employee)
Hoffman Estates, IL

ProsPay was great just for entry level admissions advisor.
Flexible scheduling (4) 10hr days.

ConsExtremely competitive so high performing advisors will not give QUALITY and useful advice.
Forced to use old exhausted out leads everyone has already called to enroll in.
HIGH budget with LOW resources.
Management pretends to care about you hitting budget but if doing too good you can easily take their position.

Advice to Senior ManagementFocus less on ease dropping on calls & more on getting quality leads for your team/employees.
